Yawn. I remember sitting on the can reading BSD mags in the 80s when they 
were saying the same thing regarding OSF. There there were/are other 
Linuxes, BSDs, and Unixes.

I've done a bunch of infrastructure and tasked-support work using Linux 
for the past couple of years. The FreeBSD pieces work better. Does Linux 
have some advantages? Yes. Does FreeBSD have some deficiencies? Yes.

There, I said it. I'm over it now.
